Data have been presented to show the linkages and most probable order of eight loci in LG XVI. The map of LG XVI is as follows: spa-3-ma-2-ft-1-soc-6-op-3-(Amy-1, Amy-2)-20-Va with the position of de known to be on the ma side of Va. Data from a 3-point cross with ma, Va, and the Robertsonian translocation, Rb5, showed no linkage with the centromere of Chr 12 with either end, ma or Va. We conclude that LG XVI is not carried on Chr 12, and preliminary data indicates it is most likely carried on Chr 3.
